CANARSIE, Brooklyn — A boy was struck and killed after attempting to jump between subway cars late Wednesday night, police said.

The 14-year-old boy was apparently trying to jump between subway cars from the station platform while the train was traveling near the Rockaway Parkway L train station around 11 p.m.

That’s when a southbound L train struck him, police said.

He was killed as a result.

L service was stopped in both directions between Broadway Junction and Rockaway Parkway for a period of time while police conducted an investigation.
